About Platinum Égoïste

The "alter ego" of Egoiste. A fresh fragrance enjoyed by many. Similar bottle to the original Egoiste, but with a silver lid. Packaged in a silver box.

Platinum Égoïste fragrance notes

Reviews of Platinum Égoïste

A very dissimilar alter ego indeed to the original Égoïste! By adding the word "Platinum", somehow that guided Chanel into making what is a different scent in another class entirely.

On its own merits, Platinum Égoïste by Chanel is a butch, masculine cologne that is unlike its predecessor: Sharp with the juniper-like petitgrain note, driven by lavender and hitting with a floral-spice punch reinforced by the dry "starchy" elements in the base. It is NOT the tart-sweet-woody onslaught of the original, and none of that one's dna is present here, period! It has a leather-like quality to it, and ultimately shows itself to be a dry wood scent (vs. oriental aromatic of the original).

Clean, fresh, masculine and smartly crafted to stand on its own, Platinum Égoïste is the fraternal twin that speaks its own vocabulary but, in the end, is still a Chanel.

Classic and not dated.

The question maybe, why don't I yet own a bottle of this??

This is Sharp on the opening, elegant, classy and very versatile and wareable, very safe scent to ware out and about or even a daily work scent.

I smell after an hour a soapy clean Vetiver, with a little touch of neroli. And that is what is appealing to me.
My collection consists mainly of Dark Ouds, and strong heavy incense offerings.... So this would be a complete oposite to my Frag wardrobe.

This is now on my radar... See how long I can resist temptation. Lol

Wow, I'm surprised I'm giving Chanel's cologne a thumbs down.

It opens up decent, with a nice fresh, coldness to it. I've smelled better openings though.

But then it dries down and this queasy-inducing smell comes about. At first it smells almost feminine/floral/slightly powdery, but there's other elements as well that make it smell like...nauseating, stomach turning. Smells like diapers.

Usually when I rush to scrub a fragrance off me it's because they're overly sharp, way too sweet, way too heavy, but this one was actually grossing me out a bit. And it was very hard to wash it off as well.

I've tried a lot of 'barbershop' fragrances including Pinaud Clubman, YSL's Rive Gauche pour homme, Azzaro pour Homme, Replica's At the Barber, and others. Citrus barbershop scents is another story, but as far as lavender-centric barbershop scents go, this is hands down the greatest. It smells absolutely fantastic and is far superior to all of the other barbershop scents I just listed. It's basically lavender and geranium with clary sage and neroli as well into the drydown. Sillage and longevity are both excellent. The lavender isn't overly sweet as in Azzaro pour Homme or Rive Gauche, and it isn't coupled with anise (which smells odd to my nose). The geranium makes the whole thing smell and feel very cooling, almost like mint. Due to the clary sage and slight neroli in it, it retains an old-world sort of character to it, and reminds me of a lavender version of Salvatore Farragamo's Acqua Essenziale Colonia (a citrus barbershop favourite of mine). This is the greatest barbershop scent, hands down. I want a full bottle of this some day.

5/5

Fresh, Herbal, Clean, Woody.

Once again, that excellent Chanel quality is there making this inoffensive, extremely versatile, well blended, and easy to wear. It's a compliment machine too, if that's your thing. We've all smelled Fierce by A&F so picture this as a polished and more refined version. The former is probably meant for the ages 15-25. Throw another 20 onto that for Platinum Egoiste.

Fresh, sharp, bitter lemon opening, via petitgrain, I presume. There's also a refined saltiness in the base. I'm not sure if that's a Chanel base or what but it smells classy. Later the drydown becomes smooth and has sweet, woody notes. There's still just a hint of that citrus. My wife complimented me upon walking into the room after spraying, saying it was very fresh and clean. Doesn't smell dated at all to me.

Feels very versatile. All occasions and conditions.

The opening projection is great but that only lasts for 30 minutes, maybe. After that, you get mild projection for 3-4 hours. Then it's a skin scent the rest of the day but still smells great.
